No matter how you decide to reconnect with nature (a brisk walk through the neighborhood, a long-weekend escape, or a backcountry adventure), there are a few things you should always bring with you: a water bottle, comfortable shoes, and something to snack on. These are essential. But have you ever thought about bringing your favorite CBD products outside?
In addition to promoting rest and relaxation, CBD products containing supplements may support muscle recovery, focus, and stress management — making it an obvious, if often overlooked, choice for all different types of movement in the great outdoors. And the fact that it’s available in so many different forms, from oils to lotions to pills, means it can also be packed up and taken on the go with ease. Let’s go on an adventure to find out how CBD can enhance our outdoor wellness experiences.
Meditating inside is one thing. But meditating outside in the fresh, crisp air surrounded by Mother Nature is an entirely different experience — one that can be elevated even more with CBD. Using a plant-based tincture might help you feel grounded and focus your thoughts, and take your ritual to the next level. Try placing a few drops underneath the tongue as you settle onto the ground, take a deep breath, and prepare to find your inner zen.
Skiing is an invigorating sport, but it’s also notorious for making us feel sore and stiff. We have so much adrenaline pumping through our bodies as we race down the slopes that we don’t notice how much work our muscles are doing — or the recovery we’ll need later on. While a little après ski and sauna session can help, you can also try using a CBD balm. Massaged onto tired muscles, it’ll quickly have you feeling better and ready for another run on the mountain.
Is there anything more picturesque than a circle of friends sitting around a roaring campfire under a sky full of stars? Camping is one of the best ways to experience and connect with nature, but it can be difficult to get a good night’s sleep outdoors; there are usually a few critters rustling nearby, and they don’t seem so small and harmless in the middle of the night. Next time you head out to the woods, bring along some CBD capsules. The plant-based compound is known for its ability to promote rest and relaxation, so you can sleep soundly (even if your mind is running wild).
A lazy day spent suntanning, reading, and swimming is what summer’s all about. And CBD can help you enjoy these leisurely activities even more than you already do; its calming effects may help you feel centered, so you can focus on what’s important in life and fully enjoy your day in the sun. Try packing some CBD products for your beach picnic — they’re fun to share with friends. Don’t forget to read the product label for proper dosage and storage instructions. Always store your CBD in a cool dry place (out of direct sunlight) to protect the quality and potency!
Whether you’re in your living room, at the park, or at your favorite local studio, yoga is all about reconnecting with your body, mind, and spirit. No matter where you practice, try to come to the mat with intention. Full- or broad-spectrum CBD drops can help you settle into warrior or child’s pose and enhance your practice.
If you’re a trail runner, chances are you’re not just looking for a wellness product that can ease discomfort, but also one that can give you an extra boost as you dodge your way through trees and over unsteady terrain. CBD may be able to help with all of the above. Try capsules to get in the zone before a run, or a soothing topical for post-workout recovery.
Wherever your adventure takes you, there’s a CBD product that can enhance the experience. Browse our collection to find a tincture, capsule, or balm that you’ll want to carry in every backpack and gym bag.
